Elder Samuel Hovey, born in Bradford, Mass., Feb. 24, 1742-3. He lived in Windham, Conn., until 1765, when he removed to Canterbury, Conn., where he lived until 1773. He was living in Weare, N. H, Jan. 31, 1777, when he conveyed lot 21, containing one hund1ed ac1es of land.* Later he settled in Lyme, N. H, upon Grant's island of sixty acres, in the Connecticut river. There were about thirty acres of fertile arable land, free from stones. He erected a comfortable dwelling house. barn and out-buildings, upon a slight bluff; and a canoe was kept fastened to the house or barn, as at times of high water the' rest of the island was submerged. He was a soldier of the Revolution while living here; and continued his home on this island until about 1791, when the family removed to Norwich, Vt., and from thence, in 1794, to East Brookfield, Vt., where he remained during the remainder of his life.

Mr. Hovey and his wife were admitted to the church in Lyme, which was Presbyterian in its government, June 2, 1782; and he was chosen a ruling elder Nov. I1, 1784. He was not only a successful farmer, but preached the gospel, never taking anything for his ministerial labors in the way of compensation.
